Siadar Bay (Wave , Cancelled)

 General Information.

Location in the UK : Scotland, Lewis and Harris    
Type of installation: Wave    on/offshore: off
Turbines :40  Capacity : 4 MW
Approx Date of 1st power generation:


On the 22nd January 2009 the Scottish Government granted consent for the Siadar Wave Energy Project (SWEP) on the Scottish island of Lewis.

The scheme would harness power from the Atlantic waves in Siadar Bay to generate up to 4 megawatts of electricity. The energy produced each year could supply the average annual electricity needs of around 1,500 homes on Lewis and Harris.
The breakwater at Siadar Bay will consist of 9-10 concrete caissons placed together on the seabed, each of approximately 25m in length. Each caisson will weigh approximately 3,000 tonnes. A total of 36 to 40 Wells turbines will be used to generate the electricity.
